ECC - ? about World Book online subscription

This will be our 2nd time through ECC, and I have an 8th grader this time. I see the World Book online subscription in the 7th-8th supplement. Since we have no Internet access at home (other than my smartphone with limited data), would a DVD 2014 version of this work okay for our purposes? And just...

Lay Down Your Burdens -- Minutes with Marie

“Most Christians are like a man who was toiling along the road, bending under a heavy burden, when a wagon overtook him, and the driver kindly offered to help him on his journey. He joyfully accepted the offer but, when seated in the wagon, continued to bend beneath his burden, which he still kept o...

Overcoming -- Minutes with Marie

Adam and Eve were created to walk in the Garden of Eden with their Creator. Instead, they traded that right for a piece of fruit! They questioned God’s authority over them. They questioned God’s wisdom. And they listened to God’s enemy—the serpent, Satan. Eve listened and even conversed with him as ...

This morning I tried to feed my cat (I feed her outside). I called her and I know she heard my voice. But she had to make a difficult decision. A loud garbage truck had just pulled up and she was afraid. Really afraid. What would she choose? Would she listen to her fear or to her master? She knows m...

As I heard “The splendor of the King …” (from "How Great Is Our God" by Chris Tomlin) on the radio, I saw a full moon shining in the still-dark sky. It was one of those “God moments.” B...
